Michael Yon’s Moment of Truth

At Redstate it is a bit more than a review, it is a testimonial.

Yon’s new book, Moment of Truth in Iraq,
reads as this conversation would: the unflinching staccato of a man who
has seen more than almost anyone else of this war, this absolutely
necessary but unquestionably mismanaged war, and the men and women who
fought and died to win it.

Michael Yon has a lot of his reports online. His reporting effort has been compared to that of Ernie Pyle, the well known WW II front line journalist. That war did not have quite the problem with destructive media bias that exists in this one. Yon is of the new, I’net, era of independent journalism supported by the grass roots. He provides a needed glimpse through the fog of mass media.

This book is a must read for anyone seeking the ‘been there, done that’ perspective that is needed for a proper understanding of the action in Iraq.
